New Features and Updates with Redesign

I just wanted to let you all know about a few key changes to my site that happened with the redesign at the end of last year.

ZipList – If you read other food blogs, I’m sure you know about ZipList. Now, when I have posted a recipe with a post, you will see a Save button next to the print button. By simply signing up for a ZipList account, you can save recipes from my blog, along with any other blog that has this feature. Then you can go to the Recipe Box page (up at the top) to see all of your saved recipes and make grocery lists. So be sure to check it out.

New Features - Ziplist

Mobile Users – I made the leap from Blogger to WordPress. While on blogger, I had enabled the web version of my blog. WordPress does not have that option. If you are getting a 404 Error on your mobile device, try navigating to www.beantownbaker.com directly – without the “/m” – which may be how your mobile device has saved the URL.

RSS Feeds – Everyone should still be getting posts in their feed. If you are having issues, be sure to check the URL in your reader. You should be using http://www.beantownbaker.com/feed to ensure that you get all the updates in a timely fashion.

New Features - Print Recipe

Print Button – All of my recipes now have a Print button! (Ok, there are still a few that I haven’t gotten to reformatting yet, but most of my posts have a print button). Be sure to check out the purple ribbon just to the right of the recipe title.

    found the post that’s missing some links to it.
    You don’t need to be an engineer to throw baking soda on a fire just someone who doesn’t panic. But the yogurt machine and hotplate now that’s interesting engineering. I’m guessing a chemical or materials type engineer. LED colors have different temperatures but I don’t think they freeze. Maybe I need to learn more about LEDs which will be showing up more and more in our life.

    Mixie – Sublime? I need a new KitchenAid so it’s good to know you’re happy with that one. And I think I need a gnocchi lesson from you.

    (Jen – hope you are having fun skiing!)

    Fun feature! I was able to overlook the fact that it’s from a Yankees fan…. 🙂

    I feel like we are the same person. I have a little boy named Charlie who would be the kid peeing his pants over the fire truck sighting and I’m married to an engineer who would really love to get his hands on my kitchen aid to “make it better”. I so get you. 🙂
